    I think they are the same as Bradley, aren't they? Or, they bought out Bradley, or something along those lines.

    I could be wrong though....

    Looks just like the Giant Vac mowers. I guess as a back-up or if you are a part timer, that would be a good machine for you. But for day in and day out use, I don't think it will last. You get what you pay for.

    Red Hawk mowers used to be called Bradley mowers. Yes they are made overseas, The mowers are actually a pretty decent machine. I have sold a few of the mowers and have not heard a complaint about them yet, I have one that is a (loaner) and most everyone that has used it has come back and purchased one either for a backup or an everyday machine, Check them out /they are not top of the line but they are not junk either! Im just as gungho U.S.A. as the next guy, but open up the hood on your (american suv) --see other thread--and I'LL bet you find parts on it from countries you didnt know exisisted. most everything you buy nowadays has something foriegn about it.
